The Times Literary Supplement praised the Almanach de Gotha for "its punctilious itemization of titles, lineage and heraldry [aiming] for scholarship rather than sensation". Sir Stephen Runciman wrote in the Spectator "In this present age, which we are often told sees the twilight of royalty, it is comforting to be able to welcome the reappearance of the most distinguished of genealogical almanacs."
The 2015 193rd edition follows the successful format of previous editions with families listed by rank in their corresponding parts. Births, marriages and deaths of all members of the Gotha have been updated and it remains the only publication to list all the members of all the imperial, royal, princely and ducal houses and the courts of the Holy Roman Empire. Even family disputes are handled by the careful noting of competing claims. This new edition also sees a full list of the households of the courts of Europe, diplomatic listings and significant updates in the chapter devoted to the Holy See, including the comprehensive listings of new appointments made by the Pontiff to the College of Cardinals and elsewhere. In addition, this edition includes the latest successor to the throne of Spain and the births of Princess Louise-Marguerite of Orléans, Princess Katharina of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, the Marquess of Baux and Countess of Carladès of Monaco and Princess Charlotte of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
